Beautiful Lake Garda, Italy
Hey everyone! So if you have been following me on Instagram and Twitter or if you have read my last blog post you will know that I am just back from a week in Italy. I went with my parents, brother, sister and my sisters husband and three kids so it was a big family affair. I have decided to make three blog posts about the trip. This one will be an overview of our whole week by the lake. The next one will focus on our half a day in Verona and my final one will be all about our day trip to lovely Venice.
We stayed at a Euro camp called Bella Italia which is on the shores of Lake Garda in Northern Italy. It was a huge camp consisting of loads of bungalows, apartments and caravans. My sister and her family had a bungalow whilst the rest of us had an apartment. The camp had four amazing outdoor pools, several bars and restaurants, a supermarket, and heaps of activities going on throughout the day. You honestly wouldn't need to leave the camp at all because it had everything and there was lots to do.
The lake itself was absolutely gorgeous with perfect clean and clear water. It had a little pebble beach at our shore with a gorgeous backdrop of high mountains. The lake was full of swans and ducks which were actually quiet friendly and there would always be little kids feeding them.
On Monday, we rented out a boat to take on the lake. It was €55 for one hour and it was so worth it! It was so beautiful out on the lake and we all had a turn at driving the boat. I never felt as cool as I did right at that moment, haha! My niece Sophie said "this is the life" whilst we were on the boat and she sure is right, if only we could do this every day, right?!
The water park at the camp was so much fun. God, I really miss the pool. What I wouldn't do to be back in that lovely heat where jumping in the cold water was such a relief. Then coming out and sunbathing on a lounger for a while. Overall the holiday wasn't very relaxing, there was a lot of going and traveling but we did spend a couple of hours, two or three days chilling by the pool, which was lovely.
Watch out for my blog posts all about Verona and Venice coming up soon! Have any of you been to Italy? If so, what part? Where should I go to next?!
